Blue Posts, June 3rd: WSG Flag Rez Fix, Stitches, Vanilla CE Pets Clarification

Recommended Posts


There's a couple of relatively minor blue posts today detailing some bug fixes and clarifying a couple of details on original Vanilla Collector's Edition pets and Classic.

First off we have a fix to the WSG bug that allowed a particularly enterprising/exploitative druid player to not only instantly rez after being killed with the flag, but also then instantly teleport back to his faction base and deliver the flag, getting a point in the process. This has been happening for a few weeks now and today we got confirmation that it was a bug and that it's (probably) been fixed in the meantime:

In a previous WSG, the score was 2-0 Horde/Alliance…the Horde as usual had a full compliment of players, whilst we had only eight. Towards the end, a mage and I were on a druid, I am sure if you are Alliance you have played against him. We killed him right outside the flag room. SOMEHOW he insta-reszzes at his base WITH the flag. Turns it in and the Horde win.

Either there is a huge bug that is not being listed here. Or someone is using hacks in beta.

We’ve confirmed that this was a bug, and we believe we’ve fixed it in recent builds.

We then have some passive abomination problems, as the legendary Stitches has apparently decided to take it easy for a bit:

Several sources show that it was not the case during Vanilla or even in TBC :

FYI this is just a bug, and we’re working on fixing it. Stitches will behave as expected.

And finally it's on to a pretty specific issue where a person with a collector's edition of the original Vanilla WoW actually needs to be using that specific account to gain access to the pets gained with it in Classic, despite the new multiple-account-wide system we have today:

We hope you didn’t feel that you needed to spend $15 to check this.

You’ve basically got it right – the Collectors Edition pets do not behave in WoW Classic the same as they do in Battle for Azeroth. In Battle for Azeroth, pets are (Battle.net) account-wide, so access to them in one of your World of Warcraft accounts grants them to you across all of your World of Warcraft accounts.

In WoW Classic, it works the classic way: it only grants the CE pets to CE World of Warcraft accounts.

If you play WoW Classic on your “time capsule” account, you’ll get the CE pets. If you play WoW Classic on your account you started in Wrath of the Lich King, you won’t get the CE pets.

      We knew the beta for BC Classic was close and now we also know it coming in March, and we may be seeing it as early as next week!
      In a leaked mail spotted by zon3tknew3, Blizzard staff have been asked to submit their friends and family for the upcoming Closed Beta, and that the submissions should be turned in by March 15th at the latest. The other big thing to note from the mail is that the Closed Beta is scheduled to start "later this month", meaning we might be seeing it as early as next week, or if not, almost certainly the week after that.

      It's unclear what form the Closed Beta will take and just how many players will get invited, but we should be hearing details on that pretty soon since it's so close now! So just in case you haven't yet, go and sign up for the beta!

      Blizzard have recently been sending out some more surveys for WoW Classic, this time related to changes that might be implemented for the "Classic Era" servers aka those that will not be progressing on to the Burning Crusade when it is released.

      The questions imply the possibility of something of a Classic+, with new features being added and the game possibly evolving past Vanilla into its own ecosystem, and lasting a long time to come.
      As spotted by Warcraft Tavern, there are several pages of questions asking about Classic Era servers, specifically:
      Advanced layering, where lower population realms would be combined into server groups and players would actually be able to interact between those servers. Possible new quality of life only additions to Vanilla Classic. Possible new content for Vanilla Classic, including "significant changes or new features" that might "dramatically change aspects of the game experience".

      Check out the full post over at Warcraft Tavern with a few more questions related to switching over to BC at all and which server players would most like to play on related to new changes added.

      The Burning Crusade Classic Internal Alpha has begun.
      The wowdev2 branch has been recently updated with a new patch! The very first patch of the Burning Crusade Classic is 2.5.0 Build 37796. While we currently have no information when the game becomes available for testing for content creators, make sure to opt in to the Beta today!

      Achievements have come to Classic! Well, sort of, and not all of them. RinesThaix has put together about 140 achievements to collect, but the mod is constantly being updated so there should be more soon.
      The Classic Achievements addon lets you not only gather those points up but also share and compare them, as you can link them in chat!

      English and other languages are also supported.
      If you want to check out how it looks in action, here's MrGM taking it for a spin:

      Blizzard have stated that the BC Classic beta is coming soon, but didn't specify when exactly. Today the Battle.net launcher's app catalog was updated with the TBC Internal Alpha, visible only to Blizzard but datamineable nonetheless!
      Right at the bottom there, the Internal Alpha most likely won't last too long and many have speculated that the beta won't be too long either, as there aren't as many issues to be dealt with as there were for Vanilla Classic. The release date is up in the air but hopefully Blizzard won't put it too close to patch 9.1, as many players will want to play both.
      In any case all we can do now is make sure we've opted-in to the beta (here) and wait!
